Term 4 Passion Project

For my term 4 passion project I will be making a FPS montage the I’m playing will be cs:go, I will be doing trick shots and good plays out skilling people. CS:GO is a game were it’s a death match and the team with the most eliminations wins.


I will be using my PC to play cs:go, the schools laptop to edit all of my footage because I don’t have the adobe premiere pro license.


This is targeted at people who like FPS games and also people who want to know what cs:go is like.

Term 3 Passion Project

Passion Project Term 3

For my passion project I’ll be making a chair.

The materials I’ll be using are:

Treated pine,

Power tools drill and saw,


clear stain polish,



How I’m going to make the chair

First, I’m going to go to Bunnings and buy treated pine wood because that is what my chair is going to be made from. I’m next going to buy the screws to make the back and the legs stay on the base, so the chair looks like a chair. Secondly, I’ll be using a screwdriver and electric saw. I’ll be using the screwdriver to screw the screws in o the legs and the back so there attached. And I’ll be using the electric saw to cut the wood to the correct size. Lastly, when the chair is done, I’ll use the sandpaper to sand the chair to get it ready for the polish. When I’ve done that, I’ll use the polish to make the chair smooth by rubbing it on with a rag or cloth.

What it’s going to look like,

But the difference is my chair won’t have the wood sticks on the bottom. The lines cut in the back. The back won’t be as small.


Why Am I Making This?

I’m making a chair because for my term 2 passion project I built a table so I’m going to make a study in my bedroom.


What Audience Is This For?

The audience this is for is the people who don’t have a chair or need a chair.



Passion project Term 2 POST 2

building a table.

so far I’ve bought the wood to start building but I need my uncle to come over and help me cut the wood to the size I need and I also learnt It’s not going easy because I have to wait for the glass to be cut and I’m going to have to sand paper the wood and then polish I until it’s smooth. The next step for me is to get the glass put it on, sand paper, polish and put the legs on to the treated oak.

Passion Project Term 2

For my passion project I decided to design and build a desk. I’m  building a desk because I want put it in my room and I’ve always liked woodwork’s. I like wood works because it’s a hands on and creative.

the design of my  desk is going to look like this desk.

Dimensions=1100 500 750

I’m buying my wood from Bunnings. then I will get the oak wood planks and cut them in to the right shape and sand paper the legs then polish them so their not rough. Next I’ll get some treated pine cut into the shape I need. Finally I’ll go to a glacier to cut the glass for the top.

the legs of the table are going to look like these legs on this table.

the legs are going to be on a angle.

My audience for my passion project is people who like wood works and need a desk.

I’m looking forward to cutting the wood, using the desk and putting the glass on the table.





Birke Baehr’s TED Talk

The three main messages from birke’s talk was to eat organic food’s from local farmers, to know where your food is coming from and try to help community farmers.

The three most powerful things birke said was would your rather pay the farmers of the hospital this is powerful to me because it means would you pay the extra to be healthy or pay less now then pay more later in hospital. Changing one kid at a time this is powerful to me because it means his willing to spend a lot of time on this project to get kids to eat healthy.

Richard TED Talk

The main message for Richards TED talk is that loins are a big problem to farmers in Kenya and there is a way to solve the problem  with out the killing the loins. Another message Is that loins are not dumb animals and lions are afraid of moving light.

Richard got his messages across by being humorous, not talking too fast, eye contact and pictures.

The technical support Richard used was a mic and a telly board.

The techniques Richard used well was eye contact staying on the audience, he also used humour well not too much but to make a joke but enough to make it fun for the audience.

Thomas TED Talk Review

What presentation techniques did he use well?

The main messages in Thomas’s TED  Talk were providing a platform for kids to learn  how to code, making apps are fun.

He used his own experiences about what worked, what didn’t and how to improve the space. He also used humour and engaged with his audience.

The technical support he used was a clicker to change the presentation pictures,

Green Screen

In inquiry with Mr Henderson I learnt how to put green screen in to adobe premiere. First, put your video or picture and your background into adobe premiere. Secondly, go to the top right corner of adobe premiere and click the arrow next to the folder named video effects and scroll down to  keying and click the arrow then there should be a folder named ultra key after drag the ultra key file to the video. Thirdly, got to the top left and click on effect controls after click  the eye dropper next to key colour. Lastly, with the eye dropper click the green around your character or picture and then it should appear on your background.
